Walker, who was named to the Preseason All-Big First Team before the start of this past season, made the controversial decision to leave the OU football program in mid-November to prepare for the draft. ESPN's draft guru, Mel Kiper, said before the draft that he believed Walker would've been a first round pick if he would've played the whole season.
